The death of Pan Am Corp. ends an often-glorious 64-year history of an airline which for decades was regarded as this country's flagship carrier.The early days of Pan American were a series of pioneering feats in commercial aviation under the firm's visionary founder, Juan T. Trippe. In 1927, the airline inaugurated the first scheduled international flight -- a mail run between Key West, Fla., and Havana. After becoming the first U.S. airline to develop four-engine flying boats, Pan Am launched the first scheduled trans-Pacific service in 1935.

Mexican-born filmmaker Guillermo del Toro plants kernels of truth within cornucopias of inspired grotesquerie. In his own words, he makes "eye protein, not eye candy. " His chef d'oeuvre — to date — is "Pan's Labyrinth" (2006), the rare fairy tale to win three Academy Awards. Equally provocative and cathartic, it's an inspired choice for viewing and discussion at the splendid FilmTalk series at the Central Library on Saturday. Set in 1944 Spain, the story tests the mettle of its 12-year-old heroine, Ofelia, when she travels with her mother to a remote military outpost.

NEW YORK -- UAL Corp., parent of United Airlines, announced yesterday that it had agreed to acquire one of the most prized assets in the airline industry, the routes of Pan Am between five U.S. cities and London.The $400 million acquisition pact was a coup for Stephen M. Wolf, chairman of UAL. The all-cash transaction could give United a substantial lead over its competitors, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines, in the race to Europe. At the same time it strips Pan Am of the core of its European route system.

Trans World Airlines Inc. and American Airlines teamed up yesterday to threaten Delta Air Lines Inc.'s bid for many of bankrupt Pan Am Corp.'s key assets, offering to buy the whole airline for $450 million.The offer represented the start of a bidding war for the remaining jewels of Pan Am, said industry analysts, who gave Delta the winning edge."It certainly created a maelstrom," said Leon Marcus, the representative for Pan Am's unsecured creditors, who are looking to get as much cash as possible for the carrier's assets.

Financier Carl C. Icahn's $450 million bid for Pan Am Corp. is being dismissed by most industry experts, but some think it may trigger a new round of bidding for the troubled airline.The bid by Mr. Icahn, chairman of Pan Am competitor Trans World Airlines, would be activated only if Pan Am's existing $400 million deal with United Airlines falls apart. That deal, for Pan Am's London routes and other assets, is to be completed by midnight tomorrow.Karen Firestone, airline analyst for Fidelity Investments in Boston, said an Icahn purchase of Pan Am is unlikely, but "everyone else is making an offer, so why shouldn't Icahn?

As Triple Crown contender California Chrome went about his daily routine Saturday in preparation for the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes, a sizable field was shaping up to challenge the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner in the 11/2-mile race.

The boy who never grew up, but learned how to fly, has fascinated children - and adults who still remember being young - since he first soared above a London stage in a hit play by J.M. Barrie in 1904. More than a century later, audiences can have fun learning how that boy turned into Peter Pan, thanks to another hit play, this one landing in Baltimore on Tuesday to start a two-week engagement at the Hippodrome . "Peter and the Starcatcher," which earned a slew of Tony Awards after its 2012 Broadway run, is an eventful show loaded with humor and heart, not to mention surprise.

Lisa Lee has done it again. After selling Umi Sake, the uber-popular Asian food restaurant in Cockeysville, Lee scooted a couple miles up York Road, opening a new restaurant, Fusion, in April of last year. At Fusion, Lee stuck with what she knows best: crowd-pleasing, Americanized food from across the Asian continent. The food is paired with an enthusiastic staff that knows the menu and isn't afraid to sell it, creating a deservedly popular dinner spot. Scene & Decor From the outside, Fusion looks a lot like a tiny dive bar. With few windows and a small, neon "open" sign, it seems like the type of place where people might go for cheap beer and big trouble (before opening Fusion, Lee did briefly run a bar in the space)

Fifty years ago Sunday, mere days before the Christmas holiday, dozens of families from Elkton and north along the northeast corridor to Staten Island, N.Y., were changed in an instant. The mid-air explosion of Pan Am Flight 214 over Elkton became Maryland's largest loss-of-life disaster. The plane, a Boeing 707, returning from San Juan, Puerto Rico, made a stop in Baltimore to refuel before continuing to Philadelphia to drop off the last of its passengers. But, Pan Am Flight 214 never made it past Elkton.
